Solicitation of contributions for "Records of the Hawaii Biological Survey"

The Hawaii Biological Survey was established at Bishop Museum to provide
an efficient means to gather, synthesize, archive, and distribute
information on the biota of the Hawaiian Islands.  Many  continuing
discoveries of new distributional and taxonomic information on the
Hawaiian biota that are significant to a broad audience are documented
poorly, if at all.  In order to address this problem, Bishop Museum
devotes one issue of "Bishop Museum Occasional Papers" per year to "Records
of the Hawaii Biological Survey for 19xx". Editorial guidelines are

Papers submitted for consideration for publication in the "Records" are
normally limited to short notes (i.e., papers not exceeding 2-3 printed
pages); preferably short paragraphs for each species treated.  Notes in
the "Records" should pertain to the following species-specific information:
new island records, new state records, new naturalized records (for
plants), new synonymies, notable rediscoveries, etc.  New range extensions
on any particular island will be included if the information is important
(e.g., rare or uncommon species previously known from one or few
localities).  Longer papers will be considered for publication, but
authors should consult the editors BEFORE submission.

The deadline for submission of manuscripts is November 15, 1996.  All
manuscripts MUST conform to the editorial guidelines. Early submission,
especially for longer contributions, is encouraged. Submission on disk or
by electronic mail is encouraged for notes; and submission on disk is
required for longer papers. Proof will not necessarily be sent for short
papers.  We anticipate publication of the issue by early February 1997.

Submissions should be directed to Dr. Neal Evenhuis, Hawaii Biological
Survey, Department of Natural Sciences, Bishop Museum, 1525 Bernice Street,
Honolulu, Hawaii 96817, USA; fax 808-847-8252.

Questions may also be directed to the following individuals, but Allen
Allison and Scott Miller will be away until November 8th.
